Lego Queen

A 10-cm high Lego model of the Queen with a real diamond crown is to be installed at Legoland in Windsor, a stone’s throw from Windsor castle to mark the Diamond Jubilee.

The Lego Queen will go on display on the balcony of a recreation of Buckingham Palace at Legoland Windsor’s Miniland, seen in these pictures.

The Queen will be joined on the balcony by new figures of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Rumours that Lego are producing a new clip-on Pippa Bum are unfounded.
